Experience-dependent modification of ultrasound auditory processing in a cricket escape response
Journal of Experimental Biology
The ultrasound acoustic startle response (ASR) of crickets (Teleogryllus oceanicus) is a defense against echolocating bats. The ASR to a test pulse can be habituated by a train of ultrasound prepulses. We found that this conditioning paradigm modified both the gain and the lateral direction of the startle response. Habituation reduced the slope of the intensity/response relationship but did not alter stimulus threshold, so habituation extended the dynamic range of the ASR to higher stimuluspmid:10504315 fatcat:pvu4cxh2q5brbbjhj7z77djzui
